Former Mayor and Congressman Lou Barletta, Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania, today issued the following statement regarding President Joe Biden’s visit to Pennsylvania:
“President Biden is trying to fool Pennsylvanians into thinking he cares about jobs and manufacturing, but he’s been crushing energy sector jobs in Pennsylvania and across the country since he stepped foot in office.
"We’ve got sky high fuel prices as a result of Biden’s radical, leftist, anti-energy agenda, which is decimating the manufacturing industry and the workers who depend on it to feed their families.
"To add the cherry on top, businesses are struggling to find workers thanks to President Biden and Governor Wolf paying people more to stay at home than to return to the workforce. The Biden agenda has been more anti-worker than any administration in recent history.”
